"Make them bleed"-this is what the Intelligence agencies in India managed to pick up while listening to the chatter between a terrorist group in Pakistan with their handlers. In the past week, the Intelligence Bureau has been issuing regular updates on possible terrorist strikes that Pakistan based groups are planning in India.
The Intelligence Bureau says that the targets are likely to be big cities and this is a ploy on the part of the Jihadi groups.
"For now the entire security mechanism is focused on the Indo-Pak border and also on Jammu and Kashmir. Terrorist groups would look to use this as a diversionary tactic and attempt a major strike in India," IB officials also tell OneIndiia.
Make them bleed
The army and the ISI in Paksitan, who were given the bloody nose by the Indian armed forces recently, are desperate to prove a point and hit back. They will sanction as many strikes as possible and go all out to aid the terrorists.
Officials in India say that the recent stand-off between the civilian government and the military as reported in a section of the media is not correct.
The civilian government is said to have told the military and the ISI to reign in on the Lashkar-e-Taiba and the Jaish-e-Mohammad fearing international isolation. This, according to Indian officials, is nothing but an eye wash. "Such news was floated to hoodwink the international community," officials also say.
For now, the information that is being picked up from Pakistan suggests that a major attack is being planned. The generals want to have the last word. The recent visit by General Raheel Sharrif to the Line of Control is also another diversionary tactic to make India believe that there would be retaliation on the border.
IB officials say that Pakistan may try and hit a major target in India or attempt a hijack. They would sanction the Jaish-e-Mohammad for this hit as the group is known to carry out major fidayeen attacks. The IB has already advised the police in major cities to be on high alert.
